Few Canadian cities are as relaxing or lively as Nova Scotia’s capital and that’s especially true this March. With East Coast Music Week coinciding with the the 25th anniversary East Coast Music Association Awards Gala taking place on Sunday, Halifax is revelling in all of the musical talent on its streets this week. When the celebration ends, March Break arrives for many families in North America, and Halifax is a wonderful Maritime destination for kids and parents.
At the Westin Nova Scotian, you can book one of 99 rooms available in March for just $99. The room rate is valid on Friday and Saturday night stays during March as well as every night from March 8-15.
The Westin Nova Scotian is a focal point of ECMW celebrations, with the awards ceremony taking place at the Cunard Centre behind the hotel. The awards will be hosted by David Myles and Rose Cousins, and feature nominees such as George Canyon, Jenn Grant, Joel Plaskett and Matt Mays. Performers during the week-long festivities include Ben Caplan, Ashley MacIsaac and Mo Kenney.
Vacay.ca Gears Up for ECMW in Halifax
Vacay.ca’s talented Katie Marti gets you revved up for all of the rocking good times ahead in Halifax this week. Marti’s tips for how to enjoy the action — from best music venues to the pizza joint you must follow your nose to at 4 am — were published on Sunday.
Here’s an excerpt: “This spot [The Company House] is a music venue first and foremost, winning ECMAs Venue of the Year award in 2010 and 2011. It’s a bit more intimate than many of the larger stages and, likewise, the music a bit more mellow. Friday night is a jazz showcase while Thursday and Saturday nights feature a songwriter’s circle. Shows start at 8 pm on all three nights and tickets are $20 each. (Warning: The CoHo doesn’t have a kitchen, but it does offer light snacks on occasion. Best not to arrive on an empty stomach.)”
